On a small Mediterranean island called Porto Buio, a real life nativity scene is a traditional Christmas event. Unfortunately,this yearthe child who’s played baby Jesus for years has completely outgrown the role, and there’s no one to replace him –the island hasn’t celebrated a birth in years. With this fundamental tradition on the line, newly elected Mayor Cecco wants to ask theTunisian community that lives on the islandto “borrow”one of their children, but difficulties could arise as there’s conflict between the two communities. The mayor will call on old friends to aidhim in this challenging feat, although the likes of this nativity scene the island hasn’t seen in over 2000 years! A hilarious comedy about Italy today, focusing on a universal religion: happiness.
